Partner: ZooShare Renewable Energy Co-operative

From zoo poo to poo power—that’s the goal of ZooShare, an Ontario co-op that worked with the Toronto Zoo to launch North America’s first zoo-based biogas project. The 500 kW facility recycles manure from the zoo and food waste from local grocery stores into renewable energy. Bullfrog is one of the Founding Investors in addition to being the project’s official Education Sponsor, funding education programs for public school students.

All bullfrogpowered customers help fund these small-scale, community-led projects, including solar panels on schools and in Indigenous communities, education and training programs, and a cleantech accelerator.
